Summer Leadville Running Club

Summer Leadville Running Club
The Summer Leadville Running Club meets at CMC on Monday afternoons at 4:45pm.

With longer days and plenty of afternoon sunshine, we’re eager to stretch our legs and explore local trails! The CMC Leadville Running Club is excited to welcome community members to the summer trail running series. Students, locals, visitors… anyone who shares our love for trail running are invited. Join the Leadville Running Club on Monday afternoons for a fun 3-7 mile run, exploring the CMC Leadville campus trails. There will be theme nights, meet and greets, cool trails, and plenty of post-run fun.

Leadville, known for the legendary Leadville Race Series, is truly a runners paradise in warm, summer months. With miles of trails – from paved, well-traveled routes like the Mineral Belt Trail to the windy, dirt paths traversing national forests – the Leadville trail systems have something for all runners of every ability and preference.
